Recommended Texts

There is no one key text that covers all the module as it spans a few areas of interest. However there are some books that it would be useful to have to hand during the course of the module ands which I have found especially useful:

  • Timothy Corrigan, A Short Guide to Writing about Film (1998)
  • Sylvan Barnet, A Short Guide to Writing about Literature (2008)
  • Murray Edelman, From Art to Politics: How Artistic Creations Shape Political Conceptions (1995)
  • Christopher Harvie, The Centre of Things. Political Fiction in Britain from Disraeli to the Present (1991)
  • Jeff Smith, The Presidents We Imagine (2009)
  • John Hill and Pamela Church Gibson (eds), The Oxford Guide to Film Studies (1998)
  • Peter C. Rollins and John E. O'Connor (eds), Hollywood’s White House: The Presidency and Film and Television (2003)
